We select a model each year so that everyone has the same laptop. Laptops must be paid for at the time the order is placed in June. If you indicate the payment is by loan, the loan must be secured and the laptop paid in full by freshman move-in day.
Our campus network includes 7,000 wired Ethernet ports and an extensive IEEE 802.11ac wireless network, which means you can work online nearly anywhere on campus. That includes all residence-hall rooms, snack bar, classrooms, labs and green spaces. The wired Ethernet infrastructure is a fully switched 1Gbps network with a 2Gbs connection to the Internet..
